Imagine a situation where you are at home among loved ones. Suddenly a question pops into your mind and you immediately summon Siri on your iPhone for a quick answer. Although the virtual assistant offers you the correct answer, it uses clear language during the conversation. Aren’t you ashamed? Most likely, you would. Here’s this little hack that can save your day by disabling explicit language for Siri on iPhone and iPad!
How to Filter Open Language for Siri and Dictation on iPhone and iPad
iOS provides a native option for Siri to filter out offensive language. And when you turn this feature off, the virtual assistant keeps bad words out of the vocabulary. So, if you don’t want your personal assistant to come off as shocking, especially when surrounded by respected people (or family members), you’d better filter the explicit language for Siri and dictation on your iOS or iPadOS device right away. Let me guide you in quick steps.
one. Settings Select the app on your iPhone or iPad, and then Screen TIME.
2. Now, tap on Content and Privacy Restrictions and then turn on the switch right next to it Content and Privacy Restrictions.
